Le Fits, BC Camplight, Not Waving But Drowning Rock it at the 5th Side Benefit Show, Saturday November 17th, 2010 Philadelphia, PA

The 5th Side is our music, art, and cultural venue that we've been working on for 3 years here in South Kensington, Philadelphia. We keep a blog for this project and you can find it here. The 5th Side is a sort of home-base for Le Fits, Hi 5 Recording, and anything else we feel like programming (next show is Brandt Imhoff's senior art show, Brandt is a Tyler School of Art student graduating this December, and Le Fits awesome poster-maker).

Anyway, thanks to the friends who helped in many different ways - You know who you are! Thanks to BC Camplight for playing an awesome set (and moving many heavy objects in preparation) Not Waving But Drowning, and thanks to everyone who came out and had a good time with us.

nearfits * Near Fits to be released on vinyl in 2010! We are terribly excited. Good tunes on your Hi Fi.

"Each of the dozen tunes is an endearing folksy pop gem with vocals that reminded us of J Mascis." - Aquarius Records
This album is so good it feels like Hawaiian Hula music even though it clearly isn't. Put the 12 tracks on repeat for awhile and while away the hours." - The Owl Mag

* Birds of America Released.
The indie film starring Matthew Perry, Hillary Swank, and Ginnifer Goodwin features the track "A Hole in One" off of Near Fits. You can rent it on Netflix. It has Here's a link to it.

Here's a free download of the song.

"Shot myself in the foot so many times that I can see through it to the floor. Well at least now I know where I'm walking and I can hang it on a door."
